Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% plus original blue finish and case colors with limited handling marks. The elevator screw on the peep sight is broken at the joint with the elevation knob. Wood is very fine with a few scattered dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent. Case is very fine with limited storage and handling marks.
